EARLY MORNING OPENINGS & SENSORY FRIENDLY EVENINGS

EARLY MORNING OPENINGS

The Intrepid Museum offers Early Morning Openings and Sensory Friendly Evenings for individuals with autism eight times a year. By opening its doors early for children (ages 3-18) and their families or keeping the doors open at night for teens (14+) and adults, participants can experience the Museum in a sensory-friendly environment. In the morning, educators lead short, interactive tours designed for all learners, as well as drop-in art activities and structured social/play opportunities. In the evening, specific areas of the Museum are open for self-exploration.
